Work with just about any software instrument you can imagine — and so much more. You get a complete range of drum sounds, synths, and vintage keyboards. A powerful sampler. And an advanced component modelling instrument.
Get instant access to a long list of plug-ins you can use to enhance any recording session, live show, or post-production project. Warped Effects let you break the rules of reverb, transforming your sound with movement, texture, ghost rhythms, and much more. Delay Designer has an intuitive, multitap interface that lets you get as creative as you want with delay. And you can bring just the right touch to your project with professional EQ and dynamics plug-ins, pitch correction, modulation, filters, and distortion.
Amp Designer and Pedalboard are two plug-ins that let you create every rig you’ve ever dreamed of. Amp Designer lets you mix and match 25 amp heads, 5 EQs, 10 reverbs, 25 speaker cabinets, and 3 mics that you can position freely around the speaker cone. So you can faithfully re-create almost any legendary sound. And Pedalboard features 30 stompboxes, all meticulously crafted to reproduce the tones and responsiveness of the originals they’re modelled after. The Pedalboard interface makes it easy to re-order and swap your pedals, and to creatively route your signal for thousands of combinations and virtually unlimited sounds. And because it all lives on your Mac, it’s easy to bring your killer sounds with you to the stage.
A huge selection of Apple Loops, sound effects, and sampled instruments give you more creative freedom than ever. The Sound Library also includes surround content, so you can build beautiful, immersive productions.
A whole world of samples.
Create songs with lead vocals, rappers, backup singers, an entire choir, or even software instruments based on the human voice and body. Work with beats, sound effects, synth sounds, bass lines, and the rhythms of classic Roland drum machines. Build a solid foundation of drums with sets of fills, grooves, and groove variations — along with dozens of playable strings, basses, and drum kits. Conduct full brass, percussion, string, and woodwind sections. And use world loops, ethnic percussion, exotic strings, and regional wood instruments to bring new textures to your songs.
More than 4500 presets for plug-ins.
You don’t have to be a sound engineer to take advantage of the enormous range of plug-ins. Just rely on the plug-in settings (designed by sound engineers) to get great sounds right out of the box. Plug-in settings can also speed up the production, mixing, and mastering process if you use them as templates for your instrument and effects combos and tweak them from there.
More than 15,000 Apple Loops.
Royalty-free Apple Loops let you build a rhythm, grab a melodic phrase, or simply sketch out an arrangement. Any loop you choose will automatically change key and tempo to match your project. Real Instrument loops, also known as blue loops, are integrated into your project as audio files and can be edited like any audio region. And Software Instrument loops, or green loops, allow you to fully edit the instrument, effect, and original MIDI performance. Apple Loops give you plenty of creative fuel.
More than 1700 sampled instruments.
Beautifully sampled EXS instruments are a few taps away. Build your song with authentic strings, horns, woodwinds, guitars, pianos, basses, harps, choir, synthesizers, electric and pipe organs, acoustic and electric drum kits, orchestral percussion, world instruments, textures, and soundscapes.
